Looking forward to 2017
As this year comes to a close, I wanted to thank everyone who has taken the time to read this blog, leave a comment, or share a document with me.
When I started this blog in April of this year, I was not sure that I'd find a lot of people who wanted to read about this particular part of DeKalb's history. I also wasn't sure if they'd be interested in reading so much about just one man -- Mr. Jacob Haish. But you've proved me wrong, and I am so grateful for that.
I have been honored to learn these stories, to interview some of you, and to "meet" the rest of you via email and Facebook. I love knowing that there's a community of people who love this history like I do. And although I still have so much to learn and so many more people to meet, I'm excited and ready to continue this project into 2017.
As always, I encourage you to please contact me at JHaish09@gmail.com if you'd like to get together or share information regarding the Haish family. I'm always looking to learn and share more.
Unfortunately I cannot promise that I will post something fresh every day, or even every week, but I will as often as I can because I truly love this project. I have learned so much about my community, my family, and even myself.
Thank you for all your assistance, your support, and your guidance. I hope you have a wonderful New Year, and I look forward to working with you all in 2017.
Jessi (Haish) LaRue
